The City of Charlotte is investing in Charlotte’s neighborhoods through its Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program. There are projects in east Charlotte in the Central Ave, Albemarle Rd, and Shamrock Drive areas (CASH). From the City’s website:
The Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement Program (CNIP) is an expansion of the traditional Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP), which was intended to address significant infrastructure deficiencies within established neighborhoods through street, sidewalk, storm water, and water/sewer improvements. In contrast, CNIP will make strategic investments in larger, multi-neighborhood geographies to more comprehensively address a broader array of community needs, consistent with the goals of the City’s Community Investment Plan (CIP). The kind of transformative impacts the CIP seeks to create can only be realized through greater partnership with the community and leveraging the City’s capital investments against other private sector, public, and non-profit development activity. Extensive community engagement, as well as the development and implementation of comprehensive investment strategy plans will be critical for the success of this effort.
